Martello Towers
Martello Towers, or 'Martellos', were small defensive forts first built in 1805 in South East England during the Napoleonic War. They were also built on the East Coast of England and around Ireland, as well as three in Scotland.

On the flat parapet roof was mounted a cannon. The round shape of the building allowed it to rotate 360, able to defend all directions. The entrance to the tower was raised above ground level to stop easy access by the enemy. Read more LinkExternal link
